Guided Tissue Regeneration
Periodontal disease damages the supporting structures of the mouth, leading to loose teeth, tooth loss, and more.
Guided tissue regeneration can reinforce your jawbone to save your teeth and allow for restorative procedures.
Let our published periodontist at Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, strengthen your supportive tissues.
Guided Tissue Regeneration?
Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is a treatment for jawbone recession that uses special membranes to guide the growth of new bone tissue.
Normally when gum and bone tissues regenerate, the gum tissue grows faster. This can prevent bone tissue from growing where it should. However, you need bone tissue to anchor your teeth in place. This is where GTR comes in.
Our periodontist, Dr. Samer Shaltoni, can place membranes in between the hard and soft tissues in affected areas of your mouth, preventing gum tissue from growing in that space and allowing for the slower-growing bone to regenerate instead. This way, patients can have firm bone support for their teeth.
The GTR Procedure
Our team can administer IV sedation or oral conscious sedation to keep you relaxed throughout your treatment.
